last snow storm of 2010 and first of the winter 2010-2011

The videos include footage taken before, during and after the storm. It'll be pretty obvious which is which from the amount of snow on the ground and amount of water on the lens.

When KZ knocked my camera down, the crash dislodged the stick I use to prop up the lens cover which has been broken since another dog knocked the camera out of my hand long ago. This explains the black line at the bottom of some of the shots.

Amy took dogs out and I passed the camera off to her.

I tried to shoot in the morning today but as you can see, the storm was not over. Then the camera got wet. I switched to another camera that's waterproof but not as high res, thus the second video.

We tried to dog sled again but we haven't quite figured it out yet. Tomorrow should be nice weather and we might give it another try.

So we did our best.

Other news:

Mush killed a chicken. Mush is pretty slow but there was a traffic jam as the chickens tried to get home. Oh well.

That plus a million other things.

live updates from the road

I got an ipad for Christmas.

One thing I can do is live update my position while I'm driving so when I'm one my way to your house you can check TWITTER to see where the ipad is (and hopefully me too). I don't know if that feature will be live on Monday, but it might be. Certainly by Tuesday I will have that working.

I actually can set it to upload every 15 minutes or whatever, or I have to press the the SHARE button.

It is coming down pretty hard right now. Tomorrow we will should have a great romp in the snow video. If your dog is coming home, stay tuned to your email for the latest on the van heading to the city. Thanks.

christmas eve fetch competition: manhattan wins again

After KZ crashed into the camera, mistaking the video camera for a stick, I did the Christmas Eve fetch competition and Manhattan won 4 to 1 -- but the video isn't in the camera. I think the door to the flash disc came open when the camera went flying from my hand -- it still works.

I know I missed some dogs. I thought I shot a lot of video but it didn't pan out. Send me a comment and complain. I will get all of them tomorrow. I was thinking of adding a sled dog competition to the fetch contest.

The official fetch contest is tomorrow. The smart money is on Manhattan.

Merry Christmas dog people and dogs.

ice skate

Sometimes I can't answer the phone -- with all these dogs I might need two hands at any moment!
